Gotham City is Pittsburgh in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, Summer 2012

Though most of the filming tomorrow and Thursday will take place inside the Mellon Institute located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University, it will affect Fifth Avenue traffic.

The inbound detour will take you onto Craig Street and follow to Forbes. From Forbes you will follow to Bellefield and then back to Fifth Avenue.

Outbound traffic will take Forbes Avenue to Craig Street and/or Morewood Avenue.

The detours will be in effect Wednesday, August 3rd-5:00am thru Thursday, August 4th-approximately 9pm.

One of the scenes will feature pyrotechnic effects within the building and the scenes may involve gunfire with appropriate notice given.
